This accommodation only holiday to Chalet Gentiane in Les Arcs, France departs Saturday 15th December 2018, for a 7 night stay on a "catered chalet" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

Les Arcs came to be in 1968 after a group of ski instructors and architects dreamt up a resort with all the perks of a village but a mountainside location. It grew into one of the largest, most incredible ski areas in the Alps. The closest airport is Chambery with a transfer time of a couple of hours and there are various transport links from Geneva, Lyon and Grenoble too. Present day Les Arcs consists of four main purpose built villages. The original resort, Arc 1600, was created for doorstep skiing and is di...
As you'd expect from one of the biggest ski areas on the planet, there's everything from gorgeous tree-lined runs to wild, white-knuckle off-piste. For beginners, each of the 3 main Arcs has “ski tranquille” zones and the wide beginner runs leading to the resort have gentle gradients that are perfect for practicing. Local instructors are on hand to show you the ropes, with ski schools based in each of the main villages (1800 has the most). There are magic carpet lifts at 1800 and 2000 - an easy way for newbies...
If you’re looking for a party, Arc 1800 is hands down the place to be. It's hosted events like the legendary Snowbombing festival over the years and has oodles of watering holes like the Red Hot Saloon (or the 'Red Bar' to use local lingo). If you’re looking for more of a French style après spot, Ambiente has a really cool atmosphere and lots of nice cocktails (happy hour usually starts at 4!) while Le club 1950 your venue if you’re looking to party into the wee hours. Arc 1600's a little quieter but for goo...

"February 2013"

Nick and Jools are the best chalet staff we have ever experienced in any chalet holiday over 25 years. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable and made a fantastic effort in helping us celebrate a 40th wedding anniversary. I regularly recommend this company to friends with young children as childcare is so well set up.

"Overall very happy!"

"Best hosts in 12 years of chalet holidays"

We've been traveling on chalet holidays for the last 12 years and I genuinely don't think we've ever had better chalet hosts than Jools and Nick. The food was excellent - both for adults and actually more importantly for the children who ranged in age from 3 - 12 and after a hard days skiing can be fussier than normal. They even visited our youngest child in the crèche during the day to say hello! They were warm and friendly, excellent with the children and a delight to spend time chatting to at mealtimes. They made the work look effortless.
